Chicago Fatal 2-11 Apartment Fire: At about ten minutes to 9:00 this morning, Chicago’s Main Fire Alarm Office gave a working fire response followed by a Still & Box Alarm to Hutchinson and Cicero. The fire was in a third floor apartment that was part of a 3-story, U-shaped courtyard building. The fire extended into the cockloft and was elevated to a 2-11. Shortly afterward the fire was brought under control. Unfortunately, there was a fatality with this incident.
Last night (9/25/15), the EFAO put out a Still & Box Alarm at 51st and Carpenter. Engine 50 arrived to find a 2.5-sty, wood-frame with heavy smoke showing. They lead out two lines and Truck 18 went to the roof. Due to the amount of fire in the attic and with the stair wells burned out, companies were pulled out and went defensive until the bulk of the fire was knocked down. Unfortunately, companies found a victim in the attic after the fire was out. Here are a few shots, my whole gallery is HERE
